COVID-19 analysis


The world was already headed on the digital track before COVID-19 appeared. However, the virus, given its dangerous nature, accelerated the speed of global digitalization. Suddenly, concepts like social distancing, remote working, and frequent handwashing became an accepted part of life.


COVID-19 was capable of making some who caught it extremely ill. It also caused long-term health issues in many long after they had recovered. Governments realized that they couldn’t ignore this virus, so they imposed quarantines and lockdowns to try to stop the spread. Though they were temporary, the effects that they had on most businesses around the world tended to be negative and long-term.


The companies in the global wooden decking market suffered this fate. Demand for construction tanked during the height of the pandemic. Since the construction industry is one of the main users of wooden decking, demand for these wooden boards declined dramatically as well. The wooden decking industry is only now barely starting to recover in the post-pandemic period.


Competitive landscape


The global wooden decking market is competitive. It’s also extremely fragmented. The reasons why are that the market is fairly lucrative even though its CAGR is low. Also, there is increasing demand around the world for wooden decking. There are few barriers to entry and hence many larger companies have more money to invest in developing new plants.

Companies are finding that they must invest heavily in research and development to continue to develop those projects that will give them an edge over the competition. They are also strengthening their position in existing markets by entering into strategic partnerships with other successful companies and merging with/acquiring these types of companies.

The type segment consists of the following sub-categories:



  • Pressure-treated wood

  • Redwood

  • Cedar

  • Tropical hardwood

  • Others


The pressure-treated wood sub-segment enjoys the largest wooden decking market share. The reason for this is that pressure-treated wood is strong and lasts for decades, therefore it is more economical. It’s especially good at repelling moisture and not cracking when exposed to icy and extremely cold conditions.


When pressure-treated wooden boards are treated with waterborne preservatives, they become impregnable to rotting, decaying, and damage from insects. These are the reasons why most people around the world want to use it in their residential and commercial buildings.


By application


The application segment consists of the following sub-categories:



  • Floor

  • Wall

  • Railing

  • others


Many people like to use wooden decking on floors and walls because it enhances the building’s overall market value by making these floors and walls look more beautiful.
